Today’s Random Tokusatsu: Tokyo Gore Police (2008)

Today’s selection: Tokyo Gore Police (2008, dir. Yoshihiro Nishimura)

Subgenre: Body horror, splatter

Available from: Media Blasters

After Death Trance and Machine Girl, today’s movie is, by my count, the third movie that Media Blasters co-produced with Japanese companies under its Fever Dreams label. It comes from at the start of the era when the Nishimura/Iguchi body horror splatter movies became one of Japan’s primary SFX exports to the US, and is actually one of the finer examples from the group. It’s heavy on gore, heavy on satire, and has some far-out monster designs, based around mutant “engineers” who regenerate body parts as organic weapons.
